After school i decided to go home early. While riding a Jeepney(transport car) i saw a woman(one of the passenger) sitting beside me carrying 2 of her children , the other 2 is beside her and in the front seat. When i look at them i really felt so pity . The boy beside her was so untidy and he was sweating all over his face because of the hot weather. Looking at the woman, i can see that they are poor. Her children were so thin, i could consider them malnourished. I really wanted to cry when i saw the boy beside her, so innocent and young and i can see in his eyes how good he is. He was carrying a bottle of milk for his two younger sibling. He gave a towel to his sibling,who was in the front seat and told him to wipe his head and face. At that moment, i really adore him because at a young age he learned to be more responsible and concern to his siblings. I thought to myself to give them my burger that i have not eaten during break but i was too shy and scared. I was shy because there were so many passengers in the jeepney and i am sure there attention will be towards us and scared that the mother will refuse my kindness.I am ashame when people refuse my offer. But i really wanted to give it to them but i just don't have the courage and self-confidence to do so. I really felt sorry for not giving it to them. If only there's anything i can do to help them. So,when i reached my destination,i got out in the jeepney with a heavy heart. Until now, i still regret not giving them the food. It's my only chance to give something to them but i didn't do. All i have done was staring them the whole time i was there.
I really want to help people who are suffering from poverty. I am not rich but i got all the things i needed in life. And i know that i am lucky enough. And so,I feel guilty every time i see poor people because there's nothing i can do to help them. I don't have the courage and the spirit. My fear rule over me. "I am scared to interact with different people and i hate myself for that". I really really felt sorry for not doing the things that i should have done. I still need time to gain my self-confidence, to be myself
